TOP SHELF SELECTION:

Stonestreet 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon - Alexander Valley. "A lovely Cabernet, ripe and delicious, yet complex enough to hold your interest. It's just beginning its journey in the bottle. Very dark in color, with hard tannins, it has an immense core of blackberries and cherries.” 93 pts., Wine Enthusiast.

WHITE WINE SELECTION:

Columna 2013 Albarino - Spain. "Lively melon and white peach scents are energized by lemon rind and ginger. Smooth and fleshy on entry, then more taut in the middle, offering fresh honeydew and tangerine flavors and a hint of chamomile. Finishes with good clarity and cut, leaving floral and citrus fruit notes behind. " 89 pts., Stephen Tanzer

Chimney Creek 2014 Sauvignon Blanc - Marlborough, NZ. Fresh, crisp, piercing acidity wrapped up in a pillow of gooseberry-passionfruit, grassiness. This has a touch more to it though, a little fuller and rounder. It is clean, fresh and punchy with great acidity.

Custard 2013 Chardonnay - Sonoma. Aromas of lemon crème brulee and graham cracker crust along with toasty almond and vanilla notes from French oak aging. This wine is marked by crisp tropical fruit and pomelo flavors. It is distinctively complex with a subtle combination of vanilla, cream and warm citrus fruit notes.

RED WINE SELECTION:

Lagar de Robla 2008 Mencia - Spain. "The 2008 Lagar de Robla Premium Mencia spent 18 months in American oak. It is the most complex of these Mencia offerings displaying density, opulence, and length. “ 91 pts., Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.

Beran 2012 Zinfandel - Sonoma. This zin bounces plenty of beautifully ripe berry flavors onto the palate; quite rounded on the palate and really easy to love; has nice firmness, but reveals a tender disposition.” 90 pts., Wine.com

Francis Ford Coppola 2012 Claret - Sonoma. This Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc blend is alluring and sophisticated; it is memorably lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent flavors of wild berries, plum and anise.

MAW also has an amazing selection of craft brews chilled and ready to drink or mix and match any amount to take home. Our selection changes every week! We are also very proud to serve Monmouth's own DeNovo Brewery beers!

With over 150 unique Bourbons, Ryes and Whiskeys (and a few Scotches!), you won't find a better selection of brown than at Market Alley Wines! And you just never know when some rare Bourbons will show up (yes, we mean THOSE Bourbons!) We seriously have the widest selection you will find!
